Ever wanted to run away and join the circus? Turns out you don't have to upend your whole life to do so. In fact, you can get involved right here in Melbourne. The best bit? You don't need any experience.

On Saturday, July 9, the National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA) is hosting an open day where you can try out its classes with no strings attached. At the Come & Try Circus Day, you'll get to trial a bunch of different skills and apparatus including tissu, tumbling, trampolining and more with expert trainers guiding you.

There are three session times to choose from, with each class lasting for 75 minutes. In the 9:45am session, students can trial acrobatic pole, tissu, aerial ring or tightwire. The 11am classes offer juggling, tumbling, tissu or straps. And, if you want to flip your world upside down, you can head to the 1pm class to practice handstands, trampolining or static trapeze.

Each class is open to everyone aged 16 years and over and costs $25. If you've been trying to decide whether or not to sign up to a term class, this is the ideal opportunity to find out if you're ready to commit to ongoing classes.
